Goodwin Graduate Writing Prize for Excellence in Theological Writing
Theological Horizons is a magical group deeply committed to bringing the Charlottesville community together. The discussions of faith, scholarship, and of life are thought provoking and inspiring. Unlike any other Charlottesville community, Theological Horizons creates a home for the academic Christian seeking to promote the modern relevance of faith.
Although I was never a student at UVA, Theological Horizons, and all those that put their heart and soul into that place, have greatly impacted me! They have such a beautiful way of engaging the community by opening up the Bonhoeffer House for discussions on faith, life and academics. Not to mention the fact that they hand out cookies to first years on move-in day!
